The Farm Business Innovation Show is Europe’s leading event for farmers, landowners, estate owners, and rural businesses to find all the tools, resources and inspiration needed to diversify their businesses and increase their income. Voted ‘Trade Show of the Year’ by the EN Awards in 2016, the show is returning to the NEC in Birmingham on the 8th & 9th November 2017. This event provides rural entrepreneurs with everything needed to diversify, innovate and succeed through 200 seminars, 500 hand-picked exhibitors, industry-leading experts and unrivalled networking and business opportunities.
Diversification in the agricultural, farming and land management communities welcomes the act of building on traditional farming practices and delving into new and innovative endeavours by adding additional revenue streams such as storage facilities, renewable energy, organic food production, rural tourism or niche livestock. However, the venture into rural diversification requires so much more than just a good idea, and to thrive you need to have clear plans, goals, and confidence in your choices. The Farm Business Innovation Show provides the perfect opportunity not only to find the information but the tools and services to help you every step of the way.
At the Farm Business Innovation Show, we’ve pulled together some of the most forward-thinking business minds in the industry to share their ideas, knowledge and secrets along with real-life case studies, in order to help over 12,000 visitors to start, grow, or improve their rural business. The seminars aim to be inspiring, educational and motivational, featuring world class speakers such as; Michael Eavis (Glastonbury Festival and Worthy Farm) who will discuss how the festival and farm work together, Geoff Sansome (Head of Agriculture for Natural England) with a seminar entitled ‘Win, win. Managing Environmental Assets in the Farm Business’ and Doug Gurr (UK- Head of Amazon) who will look at unlocking the digital potential of rural UK.
